The Forgotten & Untold Heritage of Ponders End from 1935 - 1950
<p> This heritage project captures the lives and experiences of people living in the Ponders End pre, during and after the Second World War. The project offers free heritage training to local schools, organisations and individuals through London Metropolitan Archive and Oral History Society and Enfield Studies Department encouraging those involved to develop heritage skills that document the stories and archival material from this period.

By working with local elders, schools and volunteers one of the main goals of the project is to build an intergenerational and culturally diverse project that fosters appreciation and respect of others and captures the heritage of this period before it is lost forever, encouraging the community to be proud of its past and current achievements.</p>

R.A.P. - Raising Aspirations Project for 16-25 year olds
<p>The RAP project is a music project that seeks to encourage young people to learn to play an instrument and play music with in 'live-setting' with others. The project philosophy is based on a belief that in areas such as Ponders End its is assumed that young people from preconceived stereotypical backgrounds do not have an interest in learning to play an instrument or create a band developing their musical craft. Niburu feel strongly feel this is a reflection of the over use of digital music and the music industry's drive towards money and not belief that music is one of the contributing factors to healing society or setting it on the correct path. Current music industry trends have in some senses dumb down our young peoples potential to contribute great things to our society.

This film focuses on the transition from a secure unit to an open unit, where more freedom is given to a young person and the opportunity to become more independent and make their own decisions can be a testing time for all.
